FOMS Screen 382 (User Restricted Regions Override) is a program that allows users to override the Active Type and Time range for Published Restricted Areas in FOMS 381.
The modes available are:
ID: Enter an identifier for the user-defined restricted region.
Type: Enter the type of restriction for the region (Alert <A>, Caution <C>, Danger <D>, Military <M>, Prohibited <P>, Restricted <R>, Training <T>, Warning <W> or Unknown <U>).
ALC: Enter ALC Effected by Override.
Active Type: Enter the active type (Always Active <A> , Not Holidays <H>, Active During Specific Times <T> or Activated By Notam <N>, the Notam will state how to handle the restricted region). If the Active Type is set to T (Active During Specific Times), then the Time Range fields become enabled.
Time Range Date From/To: Enter a date and time range that the override is active from.
Time From/To: Enter a time range that the override is active from.
on Days: Enter a day or days of the week that the override is active.
Updated: The user’s initials are automatically populated. The current date will update when the file is saved.
To edit a region, enter <E> from the Command Line, then enter the identifier of the region. The airport data will be displayed and you may use the <Enter> key to step to the fields that you wish to edit. To edit a field you may use the backspace key to remove individual characters, or <Ctrl X> to erase the field completely.
Once you have made all the required changes, you may exit to a confirmation prompt by moving the cursor beyond the last field, or by pressing <Ctrl E>. If you are satisfied with the changes you have made, you may save the edited record to disk by responding <Y> to the confirmation prompt. Responding <N> will reposition the cursor on the screen so that you can make further changes. If you prefer to abandon your edits and leave the record unchanged, you may do so by responding <Q>.
To delete a curfew user-defined region, enter <D> from the Command Line, then enter the identifier for the region. The airport data will be displayed. Confirm that you want to delete the region by entering <Y>, or enter <N> to quit without deleting the region.
You may review the user-defined regions on file by selecting Video mode from the command line, then entering the identifier for the region. If a corresponding region is on file, then the information will be displayed to screen, otherwise a Record Not Found - Press <Enter> for NEXT AVAILABLE error message will be returned. Pressing <Enter> will display the next region on file. You may then scroll through the list by using the up and down arrow keys. Pressing <Enter> again will clear the display, leaving the cursor in the identifier field for a new entry. Enter <Q> while in Video mode to clear the display and return you to the Command Line.
When Screen mode is selected, the screen will change to the Report Selector screen, with the cursor positioned on the initial format selection field.
Hardcopy mode functions in the same manner as Screen mode, with the exception that the report is sent to the printer and that hence you do not have the ability to terminate the report in mid-stream.
Entering <Q> from the Command Line will return the Next PROGRAM-NUMBER prompt so that you have the option of going directly to your next program if you know the menu number, or of returning to the previous menu if you simply press <Enter>.
